Metropolitan Opera 2013-14 Live in HD trailer

This fall, the New York City Metropolitan Opera's “Live in HD” returns to Grinnell College.

The Met Live screenings are open to all, and tickets are required.

Each opera starts Saturday at noon in the Harris Center Cinema.

At 11:30 a.m. a Grinnell faculty or staff member introduces the opera with a talk about an interesting aspect of the work, and the College provides gourmet desserts and snacks during intermission.

This fall’s "Live in HD" series will feature:

  • October 5: Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin — an acclaimed new production of the great romantic tragedy.
  • October 26: Shostakovich’s The Nose — a shocking, unconventional opera about a beleaguered Russian official and his runaway nose.
  • November 9: Puccini’s Tosca — a sweeping tale of murder, lust and political intrigue.
  • December 14: Verdi’s Falstaff — an eye-catching production of the composer’s brilliant final masterpiece.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for students. They are available at the Pioneer Bookshop in downtown Grinnell and the Grinnell College Bookstore. Tickets are also available at the Harris Center on the day of the show.
